star" recipe said my husband!
Using a large non-stick pan, heat olive oil. Add onions and cook over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water and heat for an additional 4-5 minutes until onion is soft. Do not let onions burn, adding additional water 1 Tbsp at a time if necessary.
Add undrained pineapple, mashed banana, peanut butter and red pepper flakes to the onion. Stir and simmer for 5 minutes. Add in spinach and stir until well mixed. Simmer for 2-3 minutes (do not overcook greens).
Meanwhile, bring milk/nectar mixture to a boil in a 2-3 quart saucepan. Add couscous and stir. Cover and remove from heat, letting stand about 5 minutes until liquid is absorbed.
To serve, spoon couscous onto a plate and top with spinach mixture. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and chopped tomatoes. Serve with lime wedges to squeeze onto the mixture.
This is a complete and filling meal all by itself. Serve with some fresh seasonal fruit for dessert.
In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.
I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes". I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book. I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.
If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me. If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe. If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
